Did you catch this new show last night on TV3? It was the first show hosted by international chef Peter Gordon and it showcased our beautiful Hawke’s Bay! This looks as if it is going to be an interesting series which if last night’s show is anything to go by is going to show Aotearoa as no other show has done – from the kitchens of marae around the country.
Last night’s show featured Mihiroa Marae at Pakipaki and included wonderful scenery of Hawke’s Bay including our spectacular Waimarama. In last night’s show Peter collected and cooked paua, eel and peaches and the completed dishes confirmed why Peter is “king of fusion cuisine”.
On the TV3 website the show is described as follows “In each
episode of Fusion Feasts, Peter’s the guest chef of a different iwi;
together they’re tasked with pulling off a Māori inspired Fusion Feast that reflects the unique identity of its hosts.
In this series of 8 half hour shows, Peter Gordon bridges Māori
storytelling with mainstream New Zealand television programming through the universal pleasure and popularity of food – and one man’s curiosity to make a connection with what it means to be Māori.”
If you missed the show last night Watch OnDemand here and be inspired. I know where I am going to be for the next seven Saturday nights at 7pm.
Happy Cooking and Eating.
